  1. Performance Issues

    Hi,

    I am have a performance problem when trying to analyse some web log
    files.

    There are 44BG of log files to process - this may seem a lot but I had
    no problems when there were 35GB of logs.

    I have a server with 2GB RAM and a 2GHz Pentium4 running NT4.

    The process used to take 8 hours to run (with 35GB of logs). It now
    take 100 hours to run (with 44GB of logs)

    I got the following information from Performance Monitor:
    Processor usage: 70%
    Pages/Sec: 450 <-- bit excessive?
    Page file usage: 5% (2GB allocated to page file)

    Any ideas on what I can do to increase performance?

    Thanks

    try clearing out some HD space and with 2GB of RAM your page file does
    not need to be that big, as you see it only uses 100MB, so 500MB
    should be plenty if the problem is HD space, also try defraging the
    drive over the weekend, although with that size it might take a whole
    week ;-).

    paging has to ussualy do with running low on memory or HD. but you
    have 2GB, have you installed any other application? maybe that
    frag-guard or whatever is called that does not let your computer be
    fragmented? this ussualy affects performance.

    my 2cents, let us know, --Lehi
